PA 21.00.18 running on Windows 7 64 bit.
I made a big .PA file and thought I’d check it was made correctly with Menu / Actions / Test.
a) PA always issues a UAC prompt to do this!
b) PA always says there are many errors in PA files.
WinRAR 5 has a rather useful option in some cases, which is to be able to create an archive by replacing identical files with a reference to the first occurrence (hardlink) within the archive.
In case you choose to convert the file with PowerArchiver to another format, however, the resulting archive does not have all the files. It does not consider those that were present as hardlinks.
If you do a normal extraction of the RAR archive instead, even with PowerArchivier, all the files are extracted correctly.
When adding to a file archive, and selecting for example PA format, strong optimization method, extreme compression. In the Advanced Options section you change to Automatic, EXE Filter and PDF filter . You return to the main section and save the Profile. When you then reload the profile you do not have the Automatic options of EXE Filter and PDF saved there.
I noticed that instead if you change other options they are saved correctly (except for the Filter box values).
Also among the various changes to the advanced options you click the “Calculate RAM usage” button the value seems to be added to the previous one. You can see it for example just by clicking the button twice in a row, the value changes. Edit: actually after many attempts now it seems to write a stable value (it does not change with each click). Maybe a synchronization problem in the calculation?
Used PowerArchivier 2023 but there is the same behavior with the 2022
Optimize docx/oo2 doesnt work on x64?
This feature is still not working for me.
Dell XPS 720
Vista 64 Bit
It’s enabled (I selected the option as part of the context menu) yet it will not work on either .doc or .docx files. It simply does not show up in the right click menu for any file format mentioned above or any other format.
What am I doing wrong here?
I should mention that I am using Powerarchiver Professional 11.01.02
moved to another thread, thanks for the info, we will check it out…
Still not working in 11.01.03 :(
Please try with this release:
and let us know if it works.
Good news and a question
I can confirm that this is now working for docx files (The option shows up and compression does take place).
Files open with no problems.
Was this feature supposed to work with .doc files too (office 2003 and before) or just the newer docx format? Right now it does not show up when you right click on a .doc file.
I do not have/use openoffice 2 so I do not know if it works with that.
it only works with office 2007 and open office files - those are all zip archives, PA re-compresses them using stronger compression.
One more question regarding this issue :D
The process that powerarchiver goes through when it optimizes the file is displayed in a window and it scrolls very quickly. Once the operation is completed, a message box pops up and once you click on “Ok” PA closes down.
Is there a way for me to see what the process in that window is? PA closes instantly and there is no way to go back to view this.
it is just converter interface
